Wah! I'm ranked 293rd out of 5,000 blogs listed by Technoranki! (Discovered this by accident after following a lead from my site meter.)
Meanwhile, fellow Brit in Malaysia Shaolin Tiger is at number 18! Yay!
It took me a little while to fathom out why I was listed at all when other Malaysian blogs much more popular and linked to than mine, aren't on that list though ... and then I remembered that I had actually signed up with Technoranki some months ago and it was by invitation.
Apparently, membership isn't open to the general public yet, as it is still in development stage, but will be soon.
The highest ranked litblogger on the list is Dovegreyreader in 54th place.
Highest rated author blog is Samuel Pepys at 26. Well yes, I know he's been dead for three hundred years but nothing keeps a good blogger down, right?, particularly when he can add a little hypertext to his words. (Shaolin Tiger must be happy he's beating Pepys though.)
Exactly how the ranking is worked out is a secret, but two of the factors are traffic and Technorati score.
There are some thoughts on the site about what makes a good blog and criteria for ranking. The other listed blogs are really good and I had to drag myself away after getting engrossed in one or two of them ...
